Nice voice. Wish she had been in more episodes.

Rosemary Rice Merrell, 87, Stamford Conn., died August 15, 2012, at home. Born on May 3, 1925, in Montclair, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Albert and Laura Rogers Rice. Best known for her performance as daughter "Katrin" (as well as narrator) on CBS-TV's award- winning "I Remember Mama" series, which ran for nine years, 1949-1956. Rosemary Rice's career began while she was attending junior high school in Montclair. She was discovered to perform in the first of 12 Broadway shows. Among her most notable appearances were in "Junior Miss" and "Dear Ruth," as well as "I Remember Mama." Rosemary was also known for her portrayal of Betty on the Archie Andrews radio program. She has also appeared on Playhouse 90, Studio One, Let's Pretend, Calvacade of America, My True Story, CBS Mystery Theater, When A Girl Marries, Young Doctor Malone and the NBC Playhouse.

Rosemary's work with children has not been confined only to her albums. She has also recorded 20 text books for the Allyn and Bacon Publishing Company in Boston, Mass. With her warm voice and pleasing quality, Rosemary was without a doubt one of the finest and foremost children's artists of our time.
